Slowing Down Objects with Eddy Current Braking

时长: 1:02

How do eddy currents create a frictionless braking effect? Watch this video to see a demonstration of eddy current braking using a copper tube. When a magnetized cylinder is dropped through the tube, it starts to slow down. Simulation is used to highlight the magnetic field as the cylinder falls through the apparatus.
